Since taking control of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Director Mike Pompeo has given his first media interview. Speaking with “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell from inside the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The two discussed the intelligence community and the administrations “major push” against foreign threats.
Top among those questions was the ever-looming Russian bear. The evil danger from the ancient cold war has stretched their claws into our elections. Elected President Donald Trump has called the year-long investigation a witch hunt and disavowed any Russian connection. Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Mike Pompeo, destroys the liberal conspiracy with his assertions.
Former CIA director John Brennan admitted to Congress last year his role in the Russian hoax. Not describing how he came to possess the Steele Dossier, Brennan told Congress he passed the evidence of Russian collusion to the FBI. Brennan and his agency failed to verify the document and passed it to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
The same dossier which was delivered to the FBI by Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and contracted by the Washington Free Beacon. Inciting the call for a special counsel, the Robert Mueller Russian investigation has been engulfing everyone around the president. The president has called the probe a waste of taxpayer money and a distraction from the strength of the economy.
While the Democrats like Nancy Pelosi have called for impeachment, some of those within the intelligence community have been trying to overthrow the president. A recently demoted FBI agent, Peter Strzok, has provided evidence visa vie his communications amongst his workplace peers.
While enjoying an extramarital affair with officer Lisa Page, the two discussed their involvement with a small group of senior officials plotting against an elected president. Text messages numbering in the tens of thousands have since disappeared from FBI records. The missing documents overlap the time the agent was briefed on the Russian Dossier by director John Brennan.
John Brennan helped to start the Mueller investigation. His successor, Pompeo denied having personally seen any evidence of the Russian collusion. When asked about what he witnessed during the campaign, the director reminded O’Donnell that he never worked with the campaign. What he had observed, Pompeo confessed, was the robust stance the administration takes with enemies.
The Russian menace and their election meddling have been a hotly contested issue. While states refused to cooperate with the president’s voter fraud commission, Democratic leaders have been complaining there is not enough being done to safeguard our elections. Short of voter ID laws, the left wants immediate change in our election process.
The CIA director claims the president takes the issue of election meddling very seriously. He is very adamant in the preservation of democracy. O’Donnell asked the director why she had not seen any reports of election protection in the news. Taking a jab at the fake news, Pompeo teased Norah, calling her reporting 100 percent accurate all the time. Media coverage should be taken with a grain of salt, admits the director of the CIA.
President Trump joked with members of the CIA about his war with the media during a post-inaugural speech at Langley. The officers of the CIA were described as being elated at having the president give a speech the hard-working members of the intelligence community the same day he was sworn in.
While the rank and file may express joy at the night spent with President Trump, former director Brennan called the speech despicable and narcissistic. Breaking with the tradition of every former CIA director before him, John Brennan took it upon himself to lead the resistance against the president.
Using his influence at the agency, Brennan tried to get deep state actors to move against the government. Pompeo called the actions underhanded and divisive. Casting the intelligence community in a bad light, the former director has made the American people lose respect for the agency.
One of the president’s first appointments, the director meets every day with the president for a daily intelligence briefing. Informing the president on national security matters, the director confirmed the two discuss high-risk, covert and clandestine operations. Equipping the president with the best intelligence on the planet, the former representative from Kansas is providing top-notch intelligence to the leader of the free world.
